Brain-Body Breakthroughs

Brain-Body Breakthroughs – The biggest epidemic the world has ever known … and you’re part of it. An interview with Dr. Michael Holick.

Have you heard there’s a new drug that can slash your risk of a number of deadly cancers by up to 50%, almost eradicate childhood diabetes, diminish the risk of multiple sclerosis and double the health benefits of exercise?

Sound too good to be true? That’s because it doesn’t exist. However, if it did, the drug company would be advertising it every chance they got and they’d probably sell billions of dollars of it each year. Don’t despair because there is a solution and you can get it for free.

My guest today is someone who stuck with his guns and dared to buck the medical system. He was forced to resign as Professor of Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine by the same person who had previously nominated him for a prestigious research award and actually made the presentation. He did so because he believed that current medical dogma he was being asked to support was incorrect. He will provide some startling insights about the vitamin deficiency that afflicts almost 2 billion people worldwide including approximately 160 million Americans and many newborn children.

If you’re overweight or have dark skin you are at even higher risk.

The pressing problem is that of vitamin D deficiency. You will hear as Dr. Holick estimates that correcting this problem could eliminate $260 billion from our yearly health expenditures. He will also provide some unexpected insights about tanning beds and explain why millions of Baby Boomers have the wrinkles they do today and how it’s due to their sunscreen.
